May invites Boardman to lecture on slavery for the South Division of the Worcester County Anti-Slavery Society. May alludes to the controversy that divided the membership of the original Anti-Slavery Society, but does not indicate which side he favors. May says that the Anti-Slavery Society is unable to pay Boardman for lecturing, but hopes to pay his expenses. He adds that "It remains to be seen, however, how far Abolitionists can be revived from the torpor which the late political contest has brought on them, and brought to give their affections and their contributions, once more, to this cause."
